How many times have you woken up in the dark early morning and walk into your bathroom, only to be greeted by the cold tiles and surfaces? Did you know that your feet don’t have to freeze anymore? A simple and easy solution for the ideal bathroom temperature this winter is to install heat lamps in your bathroom.
If you’re searching for the best licensed electrician in the Brisbane area and surrounds (Alderley, Ashgrove, Bardon, Enoggera, Paddington, The Gap), look no further than Allyn White Electrical.
What Are Heat Lamps?
If you are not familiar with heat lamps, you might be wondering what they can do or what they even are.
As the name suggests, heat lamps warm up space and they are built mainly for this purpose rather than lighting. Thus, heat lamps can be used together with a few regular bathroom lights.
Heat lamps are referred to as incandescent lamps. Incandescent lamps are an older type of light bulb, the wire filament inside them is heated to the point where it glows, thus creating its light. As a result, this type of lamp produces more heat energy than light.
Common Types Of Heating Lamps
There are a few options when it comes to bathroom heating. If you’re not sure which one is the best for your bathroom size, contact an electrician in Brisbane like Allyn White Electrical. We can help you through the many options available and ensure you are getting the best option.
Some of your options are:
• 3-in-1 Bathroom Heaters
This is the most common type of heating solution. It provides heating, lights and an exhaust fan.
• Heated Towel Rails
These heated rails are growing in popularity throughout Australia as more and more people realise the benefits.
• Stand-alone Halogen Ceiling Heaters
Lightweight and portable, these heaters are common in many houses.
Have The Perfect Temperature All Year Round
There’s nothing worse than a hot, foggy bathroom in summer and a cold, uncomfortable one in winter. A 3-in-1 bathroom heater can be your saviour! While a heater isn’t appropriate in summer, the inbuilt ventilation system will help remove hot, moist air from the bathroom. No more sauna effect and no more foggy mirrors!
In winter, however, we want a warm, comfortable space. While using ventilation is still important to remove moisture from the air, you definitely want to be warm. 3-in-1 heaters allow you to use both your heating and ventilation at the same time, to create the perfect environment to unwind or get ready in the winter months.
Heat Lamps Are The Perfect Bathroom Mood Lighting
We all know that the perfect bathroom lighting is paramount. Whether you are shaving or putting on make-up, you need to see what you’re doing! While mirror lights are all the rage, you don’t need to drastically overhaul your bathroom to get the best lighting options available. 3-in-1 bathroom heaters come in 2 and 4 light configurations, to ensure the best lighting possible for your space.
Further, heater lamps alone can create a lovely, warm light in your bathroom, if you just want a space to unwind and relax!
Choose One That Fits Your Bathroom!
Heat lamps come in many shapes and sizes. Although heat bulbs work in a similar way to older light bulbs, they do not have to look like older lamps.
Depending on your taste, you can get sleek and subtle heat lights for your minimalist and modern interior, or you can get charming, larger heat lamps if you enjoy more retro aesthetics.
Whatever your taste is, our certified electrician at Allyn White Electrical is also quite experienced in lighting design as well. It is important to note that larger bulbs do consume more energy. But you can rest assured as heat lamps consume less energy than regular lamps. This also means they cannot be used as the only source of lighting in a bathroom.
